"The mountains are calling and I must go"
John Muir

It's a compelling quote that says it all for many outdoor lovers, which may explain why it's printed widely on mugs, t-shirts, posters and jewelry and paraphrased by today's adventurers.
Mountains are so special, they have such magic to them. Maybe it is the fact that they are can be at times dangerous or maybe it is because they make us feel so small. Even if you don't even climb them, they call to you.
You might find that all the problems in your life dissolve, when you are around them or that life slows down a bit. So that after spending time surrounded by them or climbing them you will feel the urge to come back.

How mountains will change your life and make you happier?

See nature's beauty with your own eyes

We all can see pictures of these places and we all can dream to go to these places, but actually doing the work to get to these places cuts many out of the crowd. The time and effort required to climb a mountain or doing a daylong trek of a mountain, can be too much of a task for many. When you do make it to the top, you can rest assure that you are of the few who made it up there, and can revel in the beauty and rarity of such a view.

Meet like-minded people from all over the world

Hikers and climbers are an awesome breed of people. You will find these a few similarities between them: they are positive, strong and confident, able to appreciate small things in life, help you out when you need a hand and keep up a warm conversation by the fire. The great thing about hiking people is that they have similar goals - to get to the top of the mountain and to enjoy a day of exercise and nature's beauty. Life long friends can be made this way, because you generally spend a lot of time with each other. You also get to share the most beautiful places with each other, which can bring people together in special ways.


Learn more about yourself and become a better person

Mountains are one of your life teachers, they will teach you patience, persistence and gratitude. Not only the physical difficulties, but also the mental difficulties will also test you. The classic quote "not to look at the whole mountain, take it one piece at a time" is something you will come to understand. You will learn to never give up and to know that the reward will be worth the work it takes. It is like reaching a goal, achieving a dream and figuring out, that you can do anything that you set your mind to. It's an addictive feeling that no one can properly explain and one that you have to experience.

Learn to enjoy the small things in life

A grueling six hours of vertical in the heat and you stop for water break. It will probably be the best water you have ever tasted in your life. We overlook the small things in life that we take for granted, like water. When you reach the peak, but forgot to bring your extra coat, you will realize how cold the wind can make you and how important the little things are, when they are not there. We learn to become more prepared and to respect comfortable things, like not sleeping on hard rocks, warm up with a hot cup of tea, take of your shoes and lay down in the tent after hours of walk. And many many more that you will discover for yourself and become greatful for all the comfort that you have in life.


Feel the importance of environmental protection

After seeing, what untouched places look like, you will want to protect them. Clear cutting and human interference in any of these beautiful places will be the worst thing imaginable to you. You might finally understand, why there are so many rules in national parks and that you are so thankful for these rules. Beautiful places can become hotspots for people and protection of them is the single best step to let everyone enjoy these places without destroying them. And most importantly, preserve this nature for your children and future generations.
